    Hi, I have the same GPS. If I need to add additional set of coords, I just select 'Mark', and use that. It generates its own number, but you can choose to change that to a name.
    Isn't it amazing what you don't see, when you don't know what you're looking for?
    The past is history; the future is a story yet to be told; write it well.

    Welcome!

    And, as countrymatters says, "Mark" your location and edit the numbers (and re-name) then save.

    It's handy to save each set of numbers, rather than editing the original coordinates... If you have to return to a stage -you forget a piece of information, or leave something like your glasses/sunglasses, you have the coordinates in the GPS.
    The other option is to always remember to write things down!
